What do you mean by fresh graduate?

I got the same mark and im still technically a medical school student since i got to do my clinicals still in the US? I guess im still technically a student and not a graduate right? I just wanted to do family.. but also wanted to do cardiology..

Would you think that if im able to get 230+ in step 2 and have good clinicals... would you say that cardio is still an option or is that to far gone now.

So this means by the time you apply to the match you will have less than 2 years since graduation which means you will be fresh graduate. This give you great advantage because most IMGs apply after 2 years of graduation.

Yes, if you get high 230+ in CK, this will increase your chances a lot.
